World: Atlas, a pyrohydrothalassic world. The surface of this world is covered in a layer of supercritical vapour.

Civilisation in Wasat System is mostly based in orbiting habitats and on airless moons. Apex Carbuncle Orbiting Habitat is the oldest and most important habitat.

Colonised in 1920 by the First Federation, Wasat later became the capital world of the House Conver Limis, specialists in the colonisation and exploitation of superterrestrial worlds. The giant hot-water-world Atlas has been exploited extensively by telepresence devices and high-temperature biosystems designed by House Limis.

Wasat is only 8 light years from Conver Ky.
